OK – Into the Great Wide Open is how Tom Petty meant it to be … but I didn’t want to plagarise entirely ;-)

Taken once again at the Ayyanakere Lake in Chikmagalur, South India.
Last one from this area (I think).

Nikon D300
Sigma 10-20 at 13mm
f/13 at 6 secs
HiTech Grad ND + Hoya NDX400 (9-stop filter)

Same place as these two:

    I just love this Vik, so much depth and light and the tones are just incredible!

  • Thank you so much Simone!
    Had planned to hang around here for a few hours to capture the area around, but the tragedy just behind me made me leave. Will head back someday soon :-)

    This is so amazing ! There is something scary in this view… like the calm before the storm.

  • Strangely enough – it never did rain heavily. Just a slight drizzle and the sky cleared.
    Thanks so much for your comment.
